A marvelous triplex penthouse in Brooklyn’s iconic Clock Tower building has finally found a buyer after close to seven years on and off the market. The 6,813-square-foot, three-bedroom Clock Tower penthouse at 1 Main Street in Brooklyn’s trendy Dumbo neighborhood has been on and off the market since 2010. It was first listed by Douglas Elliman Real Estate on behalf of the developer in 2010 for $25 million, and later by Corcoran in 2013 for $18 million. Now, it was sold for $15 million and this sale sets a record for Brooklyn’s condo market.
However, the apartment comes with a custom glass elevator in the center, leading up to the crow’s nest on top of the clock. The most striking are the four 14-foot windowed working clocks that surround the living area, ceiling heights measuring between 16 and 50 (!!!) feet,and of course, those views.
The kitchen, equipped with appliances by Gaggenau and Sub-Zero, is designed with white lacquer cabinets, Pietra Cardosa sandstone, and stainless steel countertops.
Additional perks include a master suite with views of Lower Manhattan, the Manhattan Bridge and the Statue of Liberty. (The last two landmarks can be seen from the bathroom.)
With 360-degree views throughout, the unit has two additional bedrooms with private bathrooms, a recreational space, a roof cabana, and an open deck.
Frank Castellucio of Corcoran had this listing; the buyer was represented by Monica Luque of Douglas Elliman.
